Mark Oberlechner: About Me
After many years and countless climbing trips, for the more curious among us, there comes a point when we start to wonder what else our local mountains have to offer. What else can we add to the mix? And so, of course, the idea of paragliding comes to mind...
Stop Dreaming, Start Planning

THERE IS NOBODY
There are moments in which you have to dig deep within yourself. This can only happen when you climb up a mountain, on your own.
